We stayed 7 days we tried both stone cottage and rooftop and had friends in a seaside unit. All units were very comfortable functional and perfectly cleaned. The view is outstanding.
Staff was very kind, the seaside area is interesting, just like a beach. There is a ladder to go in the water, a 3 feet and a 8 feet cliff for diving in the turquoise water. Shane, the canadian owner will let his dog Rosie dive with you if you want (she dives litterally). We skuba dived more than an hour all days, we saw plenty of fishes, all colors, a remora,a kind of lion fish and a 6 feet sea ray, amazing. Bring a 50$ snorkling kit with palms, you will not regret it.
We went out a couple of times to visit negril (5-10$ taxi rides) but enjoyed site's Blue Mahoe restaurant every night, bkfst and lunches are interesting as well. Barman Dwayne is always smiling and has interesting drinks of the day.
I had a sport massage by Denisha, very good hands.
A review without critics is not a review, so the only aspects subject to improvement:
The wine card.
The rates are not cheap, but it has nothing to do with a typical all included resort.
A live band once or twice a week would be welcome, but music at bar and restaurant was interesting 100% Jamaican.
Some floating mattress would appreciated.
Very close to perfection!
